The FFP2 mask requirement is specified in the Gastronomy, to the Trade, just like body-hugging services expanded. As of tomorrow, staff must wear an FFP2 mask all the time. Customers must use these when entering the premises, on their way to the table and when leaving the table. Service providers as well as customers have to wear FFP2 masks for body-hugging services. In retail, the FFP2 mask requirement for customers remains unchanged.
In addition, the FFP2 mask requirement will be extended to all indoor public spaces. Especially in the workplace, where there is close contact with other people.
For gatherings of more than 25 people (indoor and outdoor) as well as in night catering, 2G + will apply to the participants in the future. This means that they have to show a valid recovery or vaccination certificate and a negative PCR test result that is not older than 48 hours.
A test is still compulsory for children from the age of 6. Between 6 and 11 years of age, 3G applies with extended test validity: 48 hours for the rapid antigen test and 72 hours for the PCR test. In this age group, a fully completed ninja pass is also valid as admission until the end of the week.
The Ninja Pass is not an entry test for children and adolescents aged 12 to 15 years. In Vienna, 2.5G applies to them and each school test individually.
Nothing changes at Christmas markets. 2G continues to apply. In fitness studios, 2G and an FFP2 mask is mandatory on the way to and from the equipment as well as on the way to the shower and away from the shower.
